What was apparently supposed to be a comedy skit on China's biggest Lunar New Year TV show took social media by storm for all the wrong reasons after it portrayed a Chinese actress wearing blackface and fake buttocks, depicting an African woman, and screaming "I love China".

Originally worn by pilots, the B-9 Parka is a quarter-length silhouette that is made with a thermal-sensitive fabric that changes color when exposed to body heat.

But for retailers, the Lunar New Year is more than just a holiday - it's a sales opportunity.

Wishing you a healthy and prosperous Chinese New Year!

Limited to 34 - because 3 & 4 are lucky numbers in the Chinese Zodiac this year - the Alpha Industries "Year of the Dog B-9 Jacket" is available now online and at Kaufman's Army & Navy Surplus store in NYC for $400 Dollars. The highlight of this year's show was a reunion duet by two of China's most famous pop stars.

According to Chinese astrology, those born in the Year of the Dog are forthright and loyal with a keen sense of justice, even if they are also reputed to be stubborn, irritable and easily angered. These events include the countdown and culture showcase at Aberdeen Center in Richmond and the Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown.
